Next steps

Let us know that you plan to attend WMU by visiting the Gold Gateway to complete the Intent to Enroll form and submit your $100 Enrollment Deposit, or request a deposit waiver. This fee confirms your enrollment and is applied to your fall semester tuition. Visit our Enrollment Deposit instruction website for more information. The enrollment deposit, or an approved waiver, must be submitted prior to registering for orientation. 

Note that the enrollment deposit is automatically waived for Pell Grant-eligible students (fafsa.gov) when you confirm your admission via the Intent to Enroll form in the Gold Gateway
